Ella – nine months old

Ella had her 9 month check up today and she’s growing great. She weighed in at 18 lbs 6.5 oz. (55th percentile), 27 inches tall (25th percentile) and had a head circumference of 44 cm (55th percentile). Physically, Ella is a little beyond where your typical baby would be for her age. She is pulling up and standing quite well. She cruises along the couch, …

Painting again

Hannah requested a mommy and me day where we could paint together and since she had a day off school today, I thought I would make that happen. I’ve had this large canvas in the basement for years, planned for a picture above our bed in the master bedroom but I never got around to doing anything with it. So, I unwrapped it and got …

They were super easy to make – I just painted the sides a light pink and once that dried, traced the letters onto scrapbook paper that I loved.

Baby Christmas mini shoot

Just had some fun playing with some Christmas decorations and Ella the other day. I’d seen a couple of light photos on Pinterest that I wanted to try and copy and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. Nothing better than a chunky naked baby!

Ella – 7 month old

Taking photos of Ella this month was super challenging … she sat still for about five minutes and immediately chewed up her sticker! This little girl is getting super mobile. I weighed her and she’s 17.5 lbs. now – no wonder the carseat is getting heavy to carry. Despite her delicious little rolls, she’s starting to figure out how to move. She’s able to pull …
